thegraduate is right on the issue of changing the timing belt at 90k.
I had a 95 accord and the dealer continually tried to have me change to belt at 70k. However, reading the manual which said 90k, I followed the manual and never had a problem with my car which I eventually sold at 159k.
Only mechanical issue I ever had was my power window switch burned out. Honda makes great cars!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good luck to all and enjoy a wonderful Xmas.

#13544 of 32216 Accord SE $750 discount on sticker??
Dec 23, 2006 (2:16 pm)
I was at a dealer today and they had one '07 Accord SE with a price of $21575 at the top of the sticker. Below that was a discount of $750 followed by the destination charge. The bottom line MSRP was $21420. Why is there a factory discount on this car? Is the car different from an Accord SE that has an MSRP of $22220? The dealer was closed so I couldn't ask anyone. Thanks.

At first I thought it was a bit high to pay $5k for an 11 year old car, but once I got home I plugged in all of the options, the mileage, the information about the body, and whether or not there are any defects of that nature into www.kbb.com and it returned an average retail price of about $6300+, so I don't feel as though I've payed too much. I do know that I will buy another Accord someday, probably long from now because it is such a nice car. However, I don't think I'll ever buy anything new simply because a person can get pretty much the same car that is a couple of years old for a whole lot less, and with Honda's certified used program it makes it a little easier to handle.
Thanks for the reply.

If you want to buy a camry V6 or a ES350 V6, you owe it to yoursleves to check out the transmission problem that the 6 speed transmission is experiencing now (the famous 3-4 flare problem). It is all over the camry and ES forum...

Did you take it to the dealership or did you take it to the mechancic. I am trying to figure out the best value for the money. I know that in a previous post on another part of this site I asked the same question and wasn't given a clear answer on where I should take it. What would you suggest? Dealer or mechanic in town? Dealer would be able to make right something which goes wrong? Hopefully.
Any idea as to where I should take it would be greatly appreciated. I am already planning on doing it with my tax return, if it's big enough.
Thanks for any advice.

I forgot to ask jensad how much it cost to take the car to a dealer if you went to the dealer. Chances are prices for labor and parts are probably standard for the Honda dealerships across the board.
Once again thanks in advance for the response.

I am getting $23200-$23500 price quotes from internet sales managers over the phone. Someone on this forum thought that you should be able to get one for $700-$1000 below invoice.
